Whigham is official home of the late Daryle Singletary

The Whigham Mayor and Council has posthumously recognized Whigham’s favorite son, the late Daryle Singletary, who died earlier this year.
Singletary, 46, passed way on Feb. 12, 2018 at his home in Lebanon, Tenn.
At last week’s Whigham City Council meeting, a resolution was executed by Whigham Mayor George Trulock and councilmen Dusty Brown, Trey Gainous, Ashley King, Jim Sellers and Joel Singletary recognizing and naming the City of Whigham as the official home of Daryle Singletary.
In addition, the council renamed South McGriff Street as Daryle Singletary Parkway.
The council said the recognition is “fitting and proper” since Singletary was raised in the Whigham community and attended Whigham School.
Singletary earned notoriety for his authentic country style with such hits as ‘I Let Her Lie,’ ‘Too Much Fun,’ ‘Amen Kind of Love’ and ‘The Note.’ On past albums, some of the greatest talents of country music lined up to sing with him including the late George Jones and Johnny Paycheck, Dwight Yoakam, Merle Haggard, Ricky Skaggs, John Anderson, and Rhonda Vincent.
Singletary is survived his wife, Holly, two sons, Jonah and Mercer, and two daughters, Nora and Charlotte. He is also survived by his parents, Anita and Roger Singletary, and brother and sister-in-law, Kevin and Melinda Singletary, all of Grady County. Other survivors include his mother and father-in-law, Sandy and Terry Mercer, and brother and sister-in-law, Tony and Kristy Rowland.
